    [ASK] About MX3 and MX4

    can anyone explain with simply the different thing between MX3 and MX4 also ICC... it's confusing for me to understand...

    Cool

    An ICC profile is a set of data that characterizes a color input or output device, or a color space, according to standards promulgated by the International Color Consortium (ICC).

    Most of RIPs work with ICCs. When you have a proof rip, they try to match the target icc color space based on a device-link profile (in a simple way, they link the proofer icc profile with the target ).

    GMG, on the other end, does not work with ICC profiles. All color transformations are made CMYK2CMYK directly (the so called 4D color transformation engine). This is what makes it the best for color proofing. They call their "profiles" MX3 and MX4. In a simple way, the MX3 is the calibration profile (full gamut>gamut), and the MX4 profile is the color transformation . They also have MX5 profiles, the s to print proofs with dot simulation. With DotProof module, you can use your own 1tiff data (e.g. from CTP rip), and simulate the screen.

    it's true MX3 is printer calibration and MX4 is press machine calibration?...or you have tutorial book for GMG?

    thx for your explain...

    Dear, if you have a valid email address I could without a problem send to you the several manuals made by GMG.

    Yes, mx3 is printer calibration and mx4 is the conversion profile for the target values.

    GMG already provides mx3 and mx4 profiles for most printers and standards, if you use GMG proof paper.

    If you want to simulate another thing that not a standard, you have to create a new mx4 profile. It's not very difficult, you just have to read the manuals provided by GMG (you have to make the registration at the website as customer).

    I've made something like "How to create a mx4 profile for beginners", but it is in portuguese. :)

    BR,
    Rui

    mx3 is the same of the printer icc which tell us the printer's status.mx4 is the way how can we get the accurate data with the best result. ICC is another way to tell us the device's status such as inkjet printer,monitor,press,or scans.

    mx3, mx4 and mx5

    Hi,

    MX3 means we are considering three variables. The printer model (proofing machine like epson 7900), resolution of the printing and the substrate used for a particular measuring instrument. This is other terms can be said as linearisation of the printer in other softwares.

    GMG makes the operators life easy by providing mx3 formats for their proofing substrates.

    MX4 consists of all the three variables of mx3 over which we add the fourth parameter the "target profile to stimulate", say ex: art coated paper. In this case, we will using ISO Coated V2 eci.icc.

    GMG uses device link technology and hence these are properitory formats.

    So do you know how to export icc profile for another soft , for example , Adobe Photoshop CS5, in order we convert to profile. Please share!Thanks
